Competitive balance proposal approved in Ohio
The Morning Journal
After four attempts in the past three years to try and pass a competitive balance proposal, the vote was definitive on May 16. With a total of 734 votes tallied, 411 high school principals in the state of Ohio agreed that the submitted proposal was a step in the right direction with competitive balance. The measure aims to level the playing field between public and private schools. All schools will be subject to the factors of a formula, which will be applied to students in football, soccer, volleyball, boys and girls basketball and baseball and softball.

COACHING NEWS


Massachusettes school raises academic bar for participating in sports
The Boston Globe
At the end of her junior year at Massachusettes' Natick High School last spring, Lexi Harvey was looking forward to a senior year full of field hockey, ice hockey and softball. Not math, history and psychology. But after the School Committee voted to increase eligibility standards for the district's high school athletes last June, the three-sport captain knew that a senior-year victory lap — and perhaps a bit of senioritis — was not in the cards for her.

Are girls opting out of high school sports in Montana?
Great Falls Tribune
Nine years ago at Memorial Stadium in Great Falls, the girls' track team from Anaconda clinched a state championship as four athletes combined to win both the 400 and 1,600 relays. Simply assembling a foursome would be a major triumph for the program today. The Anaconda girls' program this spring had just four athletes report for opening workouts. The slim turnout, along with slender girls' numbers at other schools across the state, has the attention of officials who are worried about the future.

10 radical suggestions to improve football
By Edwin McIntyre
The game of football that I have loved for more than 50 years has changed — and, quite often, not for the better. Today's game is played much different from the game I first learned to play as a young boy. And I am sure that in 50 years, football will look completely different from the game of today — if it is not entirely banned and is still played. Since everyone now has an opinion on football, the safety of the game and how to improve the game, I — as a humble fan — propose a few changes for the sport.

Concussion rates double among high school athletes
WebMD
The rate of concussions in U.S. high school athletes more than doubled between 2005 and 2012, new research shows. The trend probably reflects an increased awareness and more legislation governing concussions in student athletes — and not more danger in sports, the study authors noted. "The bottom line is that rates have gone up," said lead researcher Dr. Joseph Rosenthal, an assistant professor of physical medicine and rehabilitation at Ohio State University.

California student auctions himself on eBay to get baseball scholarship
NY Daily News
Austin Herold, a Southern California high school senior, put himself up for auction on eBay, hoping to entice a Division 1 college to offer him a baseball scholarship. "At this point, (there's) nothing left to lose," Herold said. He had been unsuccesful in getting attention from recruiters, so he thought he would do something out of the ordinary to draw interest to himself.

FITNESS AND CONDITIONING


Build bigger biceps without an 'arm day'
STACK
Most guys are so obsessed with getting bigger biceps that they center their training around pumping up their arms. First, beginners should not even be doing biceps work. You will get much stronger with chin-ups, rows and presses than you will with 20 sets of curls. Advanced lifters and guys who have to build their arms to at least 16 inches need to add direct arm work and intensity techniques to keep growing.
